Local Radio Networks (LRN) Accelerates Its 24/7 Format Affiliate Growth with 13 New Stations


ANGOLA, IN, May 11, 2017 – Local Radio Networks, Inc. (LRN) has increased its 24/7 format affiliate base with 13 recently added stations. LRN offers 12 different 24/7 format choices, expertly programmed by radio pros and hosted by award-winning on-air personalities.

The 13 new affiliates are: KKGQ-FM, KIBB-FM, and KVWF-FM, Wichita, KS; WVIG-FM, Terre Haute, IN; KSAL-AM and FM, Salina, KS; KZMA-FM and KLUE-FM, Poplar Bluff, MO; KABI-AM, Abilene, KS; KZRD-FM, Dodge City, KS; WAUC-AM, Wauchula, FL; and WMYQ-FM, Moorhead, MS.

“My stations sound great and totally local,” said Larry Fuss, President of Delta Radio, who broadcasts LRN Hot Country and Classic Country formats on his stations, including the newly added WMYQ-FM.

“We developed LRN’s formats at a higher level of excellence than what is typically in the market,” stated Steve Swick, Chief Executive Officer of Local Radio Networks. “LRN’s formats are designed to help broadcasters become more profitable by providing unprecedented localization, superior technology, and unparalleled customer service.”

“We are the best local radio we can be, with the best professional sounding on-air talent we can have — that is exactly what we’ve been able to do with our teammates at LRN. It’s just that simple,” added Christopher Miller, President of Rocking M Media, LLC, who carries LRN programming and formats on 27 of his stations.

The revolutionary LRN delivery system, Radio Velocity Control (RVC), is a proprietary VPN-based technology that delivers maximum control for customization and localization, far exceeding the limitations of outmoded satellite downlinks. The RVC is designed by radio broadcasters for radio broadcasters and is user-friendly. Moreover, the RVC integrates seamlessly into existing playout and automation systems, provides 100 percent redundancy, flexible clocks with no mandatory fill positions, and a non-compressed music library with a broad variety of songs for each format.
